    What better way to discover the Arctic Wilderness than at Levi Spirit Villas? Meeting the sweet spot between comfort and extraordinary experience, the stunning villas, designed in a contemporary Scandi-chic style are large enough to bring together a big family, whilst offering some truly memorable adventure in the wilds of Finnish Lapland.

    Welcome to an enchanting winter wonderland where you can create wonderfully snowy memories – with activities like cross-country skiing, snowmobile safaris and fat biking. Just being outside is an uplifting experience – surrounded by whiter-than-white snow, breathing pure air and even drinking icy fresh water from the streams. Some like to spend time in the outdoors on foot with snowshoes, connecting with the snow-laden scenes or engaging in traditional Sami pastimes like husky sledding or ice fishing, learning about a culture that is over 3,000 years old. Ice go-karting, reindeer sleigh rides and snowball fights are popular with younger guests. Aurora hunting is one of the big draws here and in this silent, completely dark atmosphere, seeing the magical dance of the Northern Lights is a mystical sight you won’t forget.

    Back at your four-bedroom villa, enjoy the space and comfort of your private home. If you like to treat yourself, arrange for a meal to be delivered to your villa, or even a private chef for a special occasion, although the kitchen is very well-equipped if you want to cook with provisions from the local supermarket. The outdoor fire pit is the perfect spot for post-dinner drinks.

    The interior of your villa though is where you’ll spend much of your time in the evenings. Surrounded by fir trees and silently falling snow, it is specially designed so you can enjoy the icy scenes outside through floor-to-ceiling windows while open fires, Jacuzzis, saunas and plenty of super soft seating keep the ambience cosy and relaxed. A winter wonderland for the whole family to enjoy.
